WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will travel to Turkey next week for talks on developments in the Libyan conflict. She will then visit Greece and India.

The State Department said Clinton will leave Washington Thursday for Istanbul to attend a meeting of the international contact group on Libya. The group includes more than 40 nations that are either participating in or are backing the NATO mission supporting opponents of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.

After Turkey, Clinton will visit Greece for discussions about that country's financial crisis. She will then move on to Delhi, India, where issues such as counterterrorism, defense and high-tech trade are on the agenda.
